MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Adrian Peterson and the Minnesota Vikings have agreed to restructure the final three years of the running back's contract.

The Vikings made the announced Tuesday, four days before players will report to training camp.

Terms of the revamped deal weren't disclosed. In a statement distributed by the Vikings, Peterson said he appreciates their willingness to address his contract to provide him "additional security." Peterson's existing deal called for a $12.75 million salary this season, but neither of the two years beyond that was guaranteed.

Peterson was initially hesitant to rejoin the Vikings, but he said Tuesday that continuing his career in Minnesota was "important to me."
